Interesting Fact: I’ve competed in a heptathlon.

Favorite Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean

Greatest Accomplishment: When I was in middle school, I was tall and lanky (like I still am now but in a more awkward way) and hip-hop accentuated my clumsiness. I am proud I had the courage to audition for the Grizz Girls even though hip-hop has never come easy.
